foxes and lace

foxes and lace outfit post title badtastetoast blog

A fox print cardigan and white lace dress outfit on BadTasteToast.

Hello guys!

It's still August but this outfit shows that I am getting all excited and ready for autumn. It's the same as every year: I can't wait for cozy chunky knit pieces, all the hot pumpkin latte goodness, colourful fallen leaves and wrapping myself up in huge scarves to take a walk through the streets in cold weather. I love it! Hopefully I'll get as much autumn as possible before I leave for Australia.

I see the new collections with lovely coats, boots and cardigans in the shop windows everywhere and feel really tempted to stock up on warm pieces but always have to promise myself to not break my shopping ban. I also won't really need autumn/winter clothes as it will be summer in Perth when I go there. Soon I'll be wearing breezy dresses again, it seems so unreal to me.

Leave me your replies in the comments.

Happy Thursday!

everybody used to call you lucky

everybody used to call you lucky outfit post title everybody used to call you lucky - Bad Taste Toast outfit post

Hello loves!

It's Monday and I have to admit I had to double check if that's correct because I have completely lost track of what day it is since I don't have the weekends off anymore. This morning I thought it was Friday and last Friday I thought it was Tuesday.
I'm trying to smoke less cigarettes, I'm trying to lose some weight, I'm trying to keep up with doing the housework and I'm trying really hard to find a sleeping pattern so I don't oversleep and arrive late for work. Wait a second - did I just say I'm trying to lose weight? Well, I'm snacking on some delicious Dutch Dubbel Vla right now but Shush! you didn't read that.

As for the outfit: I threw this together spontaneously the other morning.
I'm one of these fuzzy girls who prepare the whole outfit for the day the night before. So that night I arranged the denim shirt and belt plus a cardigan and my green skirt neatly on my armchair.
The next morning however I felt really blergh, found the green skirt too short, the cardi too unflattering and hence changed the whole outfit by grabbing the next best skirt from the floor and the parka from the coat rack. I was already in a hurry but remembered I had bought a new necklace some days ago and suddenly I really had to wear it, so I ran back to the bedroom to put it on. Et voilà I was (finally) ready to leave the house. Hey, if I have to run to the bus stop I want to at least look good doing it!

This "necklaces over button-up shirts"-thing is really growing on me. I think I have to keep my eyes open for more beautiful statement necklaces.

Hope all of you had a good start into the new week!

rollin' and tumblin'

rollin' and tumblin' outfit post title

Hello people!

I've gotten back into the groove of taking outfit pics regularly - more or less at least.
In the last two weeks I found it really hard to sit down and be productive after I came how from work. The desk still is my favourite place but I rather sat down to watch documentaries or listen to the new The Gaslight Anthem album. Is anyone else out there a big fan?
I fell in love with their music back when The 59 Sound dropped. Man did I play this record on repeat! Of course the first thing that catches your ear is a good melody but I'm also a lyrics person. No matter how awesome a song is, stupid lyrics ruin it! That's why I can't stand most Top 100 songs.
The Gaslight Anthem however always really hit my weak spot with their beautiful choice of words. Then they add the right sound, melody and lots and lots of melancholy to their music and I'm over the moon.
I even wanted a tattoo with a line from one of their songs once but ended up not getting it done because I couldn't find a nice typography. It was "What you don't have you don't need it anymore." from the song "Stay lucky" which was very fitting after a breakup.
Beautiful. This simple sentence has given me so much ever since.

Let's keep the rest of this post short and sweet: I will quickly tell you something about the outfit because it's already past 8 and I still have to do the washing.
So the plaid shirt is a favourite of mine because of the lovely colour combo. My boyfriend called me bogan when I wore it but what does he know anyway?! Bogan at heart forever! The t-shirt is Carhartt (second hand via Ebay for about 5 bucks), the H&M jeans are the best because they fit before and after the 15 kilo weight loss and the shoes are Minnetonka (also a second hand buy, about 30 bucks via Kleiderkreisel).

Have a nice day loves!

time issues

time issues blog post title


I am so sorry for the lack of posts guys! I would love to blog more but two jobs and one internship just don't leave much time to do it on a regular base.
I'm still in the process of finding a new blogging routine between work and the few precious hours of spare time during the week. I have not been successful so far but I'll keep trying, so there will be more posts again soon.
For the moment you can follow the Bad Taste Toast Facebook page to stay posted, I upload snapshots or other snippets there every few days.

Happy Monday! :)

sailing to hyrule

sailing to hyrule outfit post title


Long time no see!
It's been a bit quiet round here lately because I've been busy working in my two jobs. In addition I started my Marketing internship today and thus will be working in three jobs for the next two months.
Despite the lack of free time I like working over the weekends. I have been shifted from the café to the frozen yoghurt shop permanently now and I really enjoy meeting so many different interesting people there. A big part of our regular customers is Japanese, which is nice because I get to learn some Japanese vocabulary. The other day they started teaching me all the different flavours. I already know strawberry - ichigo!
Also one of my lovely regulars brought me Matcha Kitkat from her trip to Tokyo, so nice!
Another favourite customer of mine is an old Japanese lady. She is a philosophy professor and the sweetest granny ever. Every Sunday she goes to church and afterwards drops in for cake and coffee with her African friend and church buddy. She is always dressed nicely in matching colours from head to toe and always wears a hat while he is often dressed in traditional African batik suits hand-dyed by his aunt.
They are such a lovely unlike couple.

In the pics (which are from last week) you can see me proudly presenting you my new favourite tote bag: the Zelda bag! With the Triforce! Gold on black! Can it get any better?
The Wind Waker is one of my favourite games ever (but no. 1 is Ocarina of Time of course!) and so I thought it would be nice to pair the bag with my sailboat dress (because in case you don't know: The Wind Waker is all about Link sailing around on a cute little boat).

Ho have you guys been? I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

Have a lovely day!

life lately - summer edition

life lately - summer edition blog post title

Hello people!

I put together another life lately post so you can see what I've been doing and why I haven't blogged regularly.
I'm not a summer girl but I'm still trying to enjoy myself here in Düsseldorf because there are only three months left before I'll leave for Perth.

I bought this shirt last year when I was in Prague and it turned out to be the perfect fan shirt for the World Cup!

I was invited to Hans im Glück in Cologne, we had delicious burgers and yummy cocktails. A great night with great friends!

These are just some of the many toppings we offer at Tenten Yoghurt. Yum!

My favourite place to buy them: Kaffeepiraten!

Our monthly ladies night was a bbq party on Julia's roof-deck. It's always a blast to meet my girls!

It was a long night but great fun and I'm looking forward to seeing the result!

What have you guys been up to lately? How do you spend your summer?

Have a lovely day everyone!

my mum's wedding

my mum's wedding outfit post title

Hi lovelies!

I've been waiting to publish this post for so long because I was curious about the professional photos and then it took the photographer ages to upload them to his gallery but now they are finally online and my post is complete.
Voilà: my mum's wedding!
It took place in May, shortly after her birthday and it couldn't have been more perfect.
A little bit of background info: when my mum got married to my dad they were  both very young and didn't have much money so their wedding was simple and convenient, nothing like the pompous deluxe weddings we seen on TV and also not even like the common "normal budget" weddings.
Long story short: after a unspectacular first wedding and a divorce now her second (and hopefully last) wedding had to be amazing - and it was!

She had a customized white suit (for some reason she was totally over white dresses), a beautiful bouquet of red roses, she had picked a delicious wedding cake and a beautiful romantic country style location.
In the morning we had our hair done at the local smalltown hairdresser's shop (who went a bit crazy on me with the curler), afterwards we went to the registry office for the official part and eventually had a big celebration at a country restaurant and guest house far into the night. Luckily the closest friends and family members were so privileged to even have rooms for the night there.

Thanks to the overexposure it looks like I'm wearing white tights but no, these are actually my legs (in transparent tights).
As for the outfit: the crop blazer was a flea market find, the dress is Pimkie, the necklace is Primark and the shoes Deichmann.
The price for the whole outfit was less than 40 €.

I think the pictures speak for themselves, no? ;)
One week after the wedding the newly-weds left for Gran Canaria to spend their honeymoon there.
And now they are living happily ever after...

Have a nice day!
